Blockchain as a service (BaaS) allows enterprises to use cloud services for building, hosting, and deploying their own blockchain apps, agreements, and utilities. The cloud service provider supports all operations to keep the infrastructure responsive and functional. Cloud-based blockchain services increase adoption of the blockchain technology across businesses. The concept of blockchain as a service (BaaS) is similar to software-as-a-service (SaaS). Small and medium businesses are keen for adopting the blockchain technology. However, its complexities and operation-level issues such as configuration and infrastructure aligning are difficult to manage, which is discouraging overall adoption of the blockchain technology. In order to overcome these issues, leading technology organizations and small startups have introduced a solution called ‘Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) model’ for all blockchain technology users. The BaaS model sets up all external services required in setting up the blockchain technology and infrastructure for customers. BaaS supports handling of complex operations of the blockchain technology for customers and their businesses. Moreover, BaaS keeps the infrastructure ready and operational. It also supports activities such as bandwidth controlling, appropriate allocation of resources, hosting, and security from hacking attempts.

Major factors increasing the adoption of blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) market is that it allows organizations to focus on their core jobs instead of wasting time in setting up of infrastructure facilities. Vendors in regions such as North America and Asia Pacific have started providing BaaS. For instance, in North America, organizations such as Oracle, Microsoft, Amazon, and IBM have launched BaaS offerings. Microsoft Azure has introduced platforms where users can develop, test, and deploy secure blockchain apps. Microsoft charges its users only when the service is used. Microsoft’s blockchain platform is also known for its instant applications development tool. In China; Alibaba, Baidu, and Huawei are major players providing the service. Huawei has built its blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) solutions on the top of open-source Hypeledger Fabric 1.0 software, this solutions of Huawei helps its customers to develop and manage smart contracts on the blockchain technology.

Large banks and insurance companies are taking interest in technology. These are key industries using the blockchain technology. Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency, is built on the blockchain technology. The technology has been adopted by several other industries ranging from banking to social media. Blockchain uses distributed ledger technology (DLT) to decrease the risk of frauds and increase the transparency of all bank transactions. Therefore, the banking industry witnesses better adoption of the blockchain technology.
